The documentation here... 

    http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/install/bower#install-kendo-ui-professional-bower-package

Says that this repository exists...

   https://bower.telerik.com/bower-kendo-ui.git

But I don't see that it does.

Which causes errors and keeps me from managing my kendo-ui js libraries the same as my other client-side libraries.  Is there some trick to getting access to this repository?  (I have a DevComplete License)

 Thanks.

Hi,

the installation instructions in the documentation seem to work as expected on my side. I am not sure what you mean by "I don't see that it does". Did you try following the instructions provided? What kind of error did you get?

Thanks for the reply.  I don't see that the git repository is available.  I have no trouble installing other packages with bower... just this one.

If I simply surf to the address provided, I get a 404: 

    https://bower.telerik.com/bower-kendo-ui.git

If I try to include this in my bower.json file...

{
   "name": "ASP.NET",
   "private": true,
   "dependencies": {
     "bootstrap": "3.0.0",
     "jquery": "1.10.2",
     "jquery-validation": "1.11.1",
     "jquery-validation-unobtrusive": "3.2.2",
     "hammer.js": "2.0.4",
     "bootstrap-touch-carousel": "0.8.0",
     "angular": "1.3.15",
     "kendo-ui": "https://bower.telerik.com/bower-kendo-ui.git#~2014.3.1425"
   }
}

I get this error...

bower kendo-ui#~2014.3.1425 not-cached https://bower.telerik.com/bower-kendo-ui.git#~2014.3.1425
bower kendo-ui#~2014.3.1425 resolve https://bower.telerik.com/bower-kendo-ui.git#~2014.3.1425
bower kendo-ui#~2014.3.1425 ECMDERR Failed to execute "git ls-remote --tags --heads https://bower.telerik.com/bower-kendo-ui.git", exit code of #-532462766

 Any ideas for making this work properly?

Hope it is okay to ask here too. But I am planning on purchasing Kendo UI pro, but in the meantime, can I pull this in with bower if my Kendo UI is trial?

Hello,

You'll need to store the credentials as Visual Studio will not ask you for them. See the updated documentationThis is not necessary if you use dnu restore from the command line.

Mark, the Bower repo is not available during trial.

I hope this helps.

For now, this is not a visual studio project. Just a web project using angular, bower, node, etc.... So if I try to do bower install as mentioned above in that documentation, says invalid authentication of which I know I am using the correct. Hence why I ask if one can grab the pro tools via bower if account is utilizing trial version?

Hello,

No, the professional bower package is not available during trial. You'll have to deploy locally.

See the documentation.

Followed the instructions religiously, but it never worked for me either.  Will try again with the production release of VS.  Maybe that will fix it.

I've followed the documentation to the letter, the error appears in VS 2015 when I restore packages:

ECMDERR Failed to execute "git ls-remote --tags --heads https://bower.telerik.com/bower-kendo-ui.git", exit code of #-532462766

_netrc​ in my user directory:

machine bower.telerik.com
        login mdingman@accudev.ca
        password xxxxxxxx

My screen looks almost the same as Abby's or I would post a shot.

Should I be opening a ticket for this as others are getting the same result?

 Thanks

yep i got exsactly the same situation and telerik support - useless , dispite including several screen shots , assuring them it worked on 2013 and proving security was fine by showing git pulling all of it down from the command line - all they kept doing was insisting it was the netrc file and not there system.... disapointed

This doesn't work for me either :(.  I'm trying to recreate the example posted at http://www.telerik.com/blogs/telerik-web-ui-products-now-support-vs-2015-rtm?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=support-kb&linkId=15976958 and I get the following error message when I try and save the bower.json file:

 ECMDERR Failed to execute "git ls-remote --tags --heads https://bower.telerik.com/bower-kendo-ui.git", exit code of #-532462766

Please sort this out, Telerik, because otherwise you can't claim (as the blog post I linked to says "Telerik Web UI products now support VS 2015"), because your instructions aren't yet complete enough to enable users to do this (at least with ASP.NET 5 websites).

Thanks

I'm fixed, git.exe was not in my path for some reason after installing.  After adding git to the path I was able to install Kendo through VS 2015 using Bower.  Hope this helps.

I feel inclined to point out that the documentation has moved once again to http://docs.telerik.com/kendo-ui/intro/getting-started#install-kendo-ui-as-a-kendo-ui-core-or-kendo-ui-professional-bower-package

The link that discusses storing your repository credentials is also broken.

Man, this whole bower thing is a horrible mess. Nothing works right, at all. I've had easier root canals. I don't understand why the documentation keeps jumping around, and isn't at all accurate?

Okay, well, this is the instructions for how I finally got it to work; Hope this assists someone else.

Windows

Start by going to your user home folder (C:\users\[name]) and creating a blank, extensionless text file named _netrc.

Populate _netrc like this;

machine bower.telerik.com
login ​[teleriklogin@email]
password [telerikpassword]

Then, open a command line and set a PATH like this;

SETX HOME %USERPROFILE%

After that, run this command through git.

git config credential.helper '$shortname -f _netrc -d'

With all that done, you should be able to open up a command line or Visual Studio 2015 and install the bower package with the following command;

Hello Azam,

This is not a known issue and I did notice that a new duplicate thread was open on the same subject:

http://www.telerik.com/forums/content-length-mismatch

Please also check the following articles for this error:

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/22183859/javascript-err-content-length-mismatch

http://stackoverflow.com/questions/25993826/err-content-length-mismatch-on-nginx-and-proxy-on-chrome-when-loading-large-file

After checking the available information, the issue may not be directly related to the Kendo UI Bower Package but indeed to be related to a third-party.

Let me know if you need additional assistance on this matter.
